I reccomend upgrading your ram to 1600Mhz vs your 1333mhz. I'd reccomend g.skill 8gb 1600mhz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Your PSU is fine but this antec will do the job just as well and its $30 cheaper. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Your build is good to go. It has even components and will do the job well. Good luck! | Report abuse oBlackhawk May 4, 2012 2:05:53 AM andystanley said:your build is good go!
